Twitter (Notch) - Update today?!
We're focusing on doing an update today, but stats and achievements are getting pushed back to the next update because they don't work.
Twitter (Notch) - Cookies and cocoa beans
I just added the cookie to 1.4, but you need cocoa beans to craft it.. Hmm.
Twitter (Notch) - What most of them stats are
Most of the stats are item usage and crafting info per item and block.
So far, Minecraft is tracking 662 statistics. The stats list page is annoying. I need a tree list feature!
Twitter (jeb_) - Not only when waking up
@notch bitchslapped me and forced me to change so that pressing 'leave bed' also sets the respawn point
We decided that the compass in Minecraft always should point to the same position, so it will not change when you move your respawn point
Twitter (jeb_) - Spawnpoint explained
"To address a misconception: You set the respawn point when you *wake up* (and being woken up by a skeleton doesn't count)"
Reddit - Wolves and creepers
"Currently they wont attack creepers because it leads to the death of whole kennels =("
Blog Post - The state of Minecraft
- [*:tnkgwqpa]Jeb has been working on wolves
[*:tnkgwqpa]Achievements, will be challenges, not chores
[*:tnkgwqpa]Stat tracking, e.g. amount of blocks mined
[*:tnkgwqpa]Profile pages, probably not in this update
Twitter (jeb_) - Wolf health
"They get a health boost when you tame them, and you can heal them using meat. Their tail shows how much health they have"
Twitter (Notch) - New ideas
"Jens is working on the pet. I'm working on achievements and possibly stats. I got a new game idea last night. Tempting.. focus, Notch!!"
Twitter (Notch) - Silly secret project
"Tomorrow, I'll be working on a silly secret project that will last all weekend. It's Minecraft related. I should sleep, but #jetlag"
New features and stuff
- [*:tnkgwqpa]Cocoa beans
[*:tnkgwqpa]Stats and achievements
[*:tnkgwqpa]Servers level-seed can be set in properties
[*:tnkgwqpa]'E' is the new default inventory button
[*:tnkgwqpa]Beds will become spawn-points
[*:tnkgwqpa]Wolves (Yeah, by general opinion they're cute/adorable, you don't have to tell us about it)
More information about 1.4
Bugfixes: Slime bugfix? Torch placement bugfix? Bed bugfix!
